Now that restaurants are beginning to reopen in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic closures, social norms and safety guidelines are evolving to promote enhanced public health. Guidelines differ from state to state, but one overarching theme promoted in the National Restaurant Association’s COVID-19 Reopening Guidance is the prioritization of outdoor seating. By adding additional seating in open-air spaces like patios, terraces and even sidewalk areas, restaurants can safely welcome additional guests and maximize income while remaining in compliance with the new guidelines.
